Many of Arizona's wild animals have learned to adapt and even thrive in our homes. For example some wildlife have found that attics make great places to live. Other animals find refuge under homes or porches. Invariably, these animals cause damage. Rodents, like squirrels and rats, love to chew on electrical wires once in an attic, and this causes a serious fire hazard. Raccoons can cause serious contamination in an attic with their droppings and parasites. Same goes for bat or bird colonies. We specialize in solving Arizona's wildlife problems, from snake removal to large jobs like commercial bat control, we do it all.

We do not handle dog or cat problems. If you need assistance with a domestic animal, such as a dog or a cat, you need to call your local Maricopa county animal services for assistance. They can help you out with issues such as stray dogs, stray cats, spay & neuter programs, vaccinations, licenses, pet adoption, bite reports, deceased pets, lost pets, local animal complaints and to report neglected or abused animals. There is no free Glendale animal control for wildlife issues.

Glendale Wildlife Removal Tip: Do Bats Drink Water?

There are many common questions about bats, often misjudgments based on media and popular culture. However, contrary to popular belief, bats are just like most other mammals: they feed on insects; find safe places to have their young; hibernate during the winter months; and fly around in colonies for their safety.

Unlike popular belief, though, and more in-line with the mammalian traits of a bat, they must also drink liquid to help their internal functions. But, it can be hard to image a bat drinking water, and this thought might cause a general confusion; don't worry though, bats drink water, but it is often so quickly that you would be hard-pressed to notice it before it was over.

Often, bats will drink water from the same bodies that other animals do, including some of their biggest natural predators. For that reason, bats will drink water while in flight, only swooping down for long enough to take a drink, to keep away from their predators, and avoid being lunch.

Bats physiology is also different from many other mammals, making the challenge of drinking from a body of water more difficult. Bats' legs are not adapted to either standing on land or water, which can make swooping the only effective way that they would be able to drink water.

For both of these reasons, bats also drink water extremely quickly, but will often take more passes at a body of water than other animals do. For most species, there is a specific way that they get water: sweeping down at first, taking a few drops, and coming back up, returning to the beginning of the cycle until they have had enough. Other species, however, swoop down to skim the top of the water, often landing high up in a tree on one side of the water body to lick the droplets off their fur.

The time of day can also factor into when bats drink, as well as when you are able to watch this fascinating scene: bats water consumption is at its most when they start out from their roost for a night's worth of hunting.

While bats do drink water, there are also some complications, as any obstruction in the water body or the presence of foreign objects would cause the bat to either get trapped or die in the water when attempting to swoop down. However, mostly due to their innate ability of echolocation, bats often do not have this problem. While they are in flight, bats will often emit a high frequency sound which can locate the water surfaces by both echo and reflection of the same frequency that they had emitted.
